Do they also have a sculpture by the same artist in London? At that modern art museum that is in an old electric station? It looks really familiar.

Correct. The Tate Modern, which is the name of the museum you're referring to, owns the original stainless steel version. There are several bronze casts located in various cities around the world, similar to Rodin's sculpture "Les Bourgeois de Calais" - the original still stands in Calais, but there are many other original casts, one of which stands in front of the Houses of Parliament.

I haven't seen this spider in person but I love it and your photo of it is just awesome!
